Can't We All Just Get Along?
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     At this point in your life, you have probably met some people you don't really like. The same thing will happen when you get a job.
 
2     How do you deal with people you don't like? Maybe you avoid them. But you might not be able to do that at work. There probably will be times you have to work with someone you don't really like. You need to try hard to get along with him. What should you do?
 
3     If you have good communication skills, that will help. Try to be a good listener. This will help you understand someone else's point of view. When you know how someone feels about something, it's easier to get along with him.
 
4     Communication is also talking. You should always give your opinion when you're asked. But try to do it in a way that won't hurt anyone's feelings.
 
5     Read about Bill and Ted who are working together to paint two rooms:

7     "That's the dumbest idea I've ever heard!" Ted said. "We'll do the trim last. Help me put these drop cloths down over the rug."
 
8     Bill and Ted don't show much respect for each other. They are not willing to listen. Each one thinks his way is the only way to do the job. This scene is sure to end in a conflict. Both Bill and Ted could have handled it differently. Read on:
